Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- Visually and thematically, ISLE OF DOGS is steeped in contemporary Japanese pop culture and futuristic iconography, but it also draws on traditional influences – not least in its witty allusions to Hokusai and other classic art.4 stars out of 5 -- [J]oyous and visually splendid....ISLE OF DOGS is Anderson at his loosest and goosiest; you could say he’s been let off his leash.[A] visual and technical marvel -- a movie whose every image is a miniature triumph of imagination and execution. -- Grade: A-[T]he details are what gives Isle of Dogs its vibrancy and allure. And despite the film's dark subtext, Anderson keeps the action fizzy all the way through.On a pure frame-by-frame basis, ISLE OF DOGS is a triumph of invention and micro-detail, a bravura showcase for cinematographer Tristan Oliver's impeccable widescreen compositions...[V]isually seductive, filled with perfectly aligned cubistic trash, gleaming pools of toxic liquid and walls of colored glass bottles that glow like stained-glass windows on a sun-drenched morning.ISLE OF DOGS is really a film about its own enthusiasms: for four-legged fleabags of all shapes and sizes, of course, but also for the culture and cinema of Japan, which is woven with typical fastidiousness into Anderson’s magpie aesthetic.[A] thoroughly captivating tale of a 12-year-old Japanese boy's quest to rescue his beloved pet...It’s smart and different and sometimes deliberately odd and really funny -- rarely in a laugh-out-loud way, more in a smile-and-nod-I-get-the-joke kind of way.4 stars out of 5 -- DOGS ranks among Anderson’s most inventive works to date.In this stop-motion-animated film from writer/director Wes Anderson, an outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy. The voice cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.
